This book discusses the symbolic and economic value that a work of art holds, being a product of its maker’s labour.

This dynamic compilation of theoretical texts, essays and artistic contributions provides insight into current notions of value and value systems, and considers everything from the role of language to the circulation of art, and how it’s aided by the infrastructure of institutions.

Along the way, The Trouble with Value tackles the historical legacies of devaluation in art, the value of artistic labour, and art’s capacity to tell stories beyond mainstream channels of dissemination.
